Frankenstein - BMW M3 E30 looking Truck with 540i V8 swap

This guy had a wild imagination. Car started life as a BMW 316i Coupe E30.

From article:
The anemic 102PS (101hp) 1.6-liter inline four was replaced with a 286PS (282hp) 4.0-liter V8 from an E34 540i paired to a short-shifting 5sp manual; the steering system was borrowed from an E36 M3, while the new brake system is said to have been sourced from an unidentified M5.
